Transformers: Movie Advanced Deluxe Sideswipe
This was a surprise. The last Movie Advanced toy released was Stinger back in January. Out of nowhere, Robot Kingdom announced Sideswipe was coming out just a day before it did last month.
Sideswipe is a repaint in silver of the Dark of the Moon Deluxe Sideswipe with Age of Extinction Deluxe Crosshairs’ weapons. He looks great in silver, but there are better Deluxe Sideswipe molds they could have used. I never liked this one, as it has no floorboards, a problem being that it is a convertible, making the toy look kind of like Fred Flinstone should be driving. The weapons don’t stay on very well. As you’ll recall, Dark of the Moon toys had the spring loaded flaps that filled in ports from the inside. This was a fantastic bit of engineering for that line, but the small guns have very shallow pegs, and the spring loaded flap on mine pushes the weapon out on one side. It’s a nice enough toy, but I wouldn’t call it a must.
